forget password

Hi everyone

I use fc2. I've locked my pc as normal user by using screen saver. Now i forget the pwd. I still have root pwd. I can not switch of the machine since it has run my long test. I can access my pc as root by using ssh.

Pls. show me the way to solve my problem.

Thank you
